    Sway bar bushing replacement 'How to'

    The brackets I got from didn't fit my 2002 (brazil) Golf. I got the 23mm kit and the bushings fit fine. However, the new black (hump in middle) brackets didn't fit even without bushing in them. The top of the bracket above the bolt hole hits the frame above. So I shaved the hump in...

    Trunk release with Key only

    I opened mine up and lubricated a brass looking knuckle that rotates back and forth - it was very stiff and not flipping forward every time when actuated. When it flips forward - it allows the handle to lift out all the way to open the door. If it keeps acting up - i'll get a junkyard part.

    Shops that work on TDI's

    awe man, that sucks! I thought him and Stokley's Service Center were the only shops in Mobile that would work well on these cars. He doesn't have a vag-com? sheesh. That is required for a TB change. Well we should cross him off our list. I don't know if Stokley's has any experience w/ TB's...

    Glow plugs 101 ***Ver. 2.0***

    Should the engine be totally cold when pulling out these glow plugs? For example, I thought it was best to pull spark plugs out of aluminum heads when cold to avoid galling/stripping. Or does it matter?
